Good morning lovely people,
How’s it going? It’s not been too busy here. I’ve been working out, eating right, and keeping up with my Bible studying. I have worked out
3 times this week and on Thursday of last week since my last blog post. So that would be Gym days 15-18, yay, and I’m pretty sure I’m not working out today because I’ve started a juice cleanse today. I’ll be juicing today, Saturday, and Sunday. I’ve never been able to juice for 3 days in a row before, so we’ll see how it goes. Wish me blessings. I’m hoping I can make it without strangling anyone. I’ve read that it’s supposed to give you energy and makes you feel clearer in the body and mind, but I’m not sure how I’ll do without eating for 3 days. But, I will definitely be giving it a “good old college try”, lol. I’m going to try many different recipes in my juicer for this detox. There are some great recipes on this website juicerecipes.com and they have specific blends for detoxification. Last night I did, granny smith apples, blueberries, grapefruit, oranges, and spinach. It turned out really delicious. So, I’ve been sipping on it all day. I also took a multivitamin this morning with caffeine added, so hopefully that will help me keep my energy up as well. My goal for this detox is to get rid of all the toxins that are in my system, ie; all meds, all meat, and/or anything else that might be lurking in there, including the caffeine in my multivitamin (I’ll be switching brands). Against my families’ advice I have taken myself off of all my BP meds for like 4 months now and it’s staying low and steady for now. I also stopped my antidepressant as well. It’s only been a week since I stop taking that, but I really only used it to sleep at night, but since I’ve been working out regularly I’m hoping I don’t need that anymore. I want to be off of everything that I have convinced myself over the years has helped me get through life day-to-day. I’m positive I can do it. With God’s help and guidance, I’m sure I can become stronger mentally and physically.
Have a great weekend and if you can stay out of the snow and cold, please do. Enjoy the Superbowl, I know I’ll be watching for the commercials, shame I know. I’ll be rooting for Peyton Manning, since he’s been Indy’s hometown hero for years. I’m hoping he can get a Superbowl ring for Denver since he got one for us.
OOHHHH, and I forgot the quick update on my weigh-in that’s on the 29th of every month…I’ve lost 6 pounds so far!!!! Slow and steady wins the race, they say!!!
